We were super excited to try Don Al Fonso’s Michelin star 5 course degustation menu! The celebrity chef hosted his dinner with his wife and they talked us through each course that was served. It was no surprise when I learned they had won the Ospitalita Italiana award last year which certifies authentic Italian cuisine around the world. It really was a taste of Italy, even the Olive Oil was divine and the ingredients were sourced from regions in Italy to which each dish was typical.
Not only was it delicious but it drove home the term “feast your eyes”, the presentation was immaculate and we felt bad eating some of the courses as it felt like we were ruining this piece of art on our plates. If you want to try the most authentic Italian food in Dubai, we suggest you head to Don Alfonso in the Shangri La SZR!
